. [laughter] >> it's really not erskine bowles say nobody is the obama administration. the series here for a minute. if you're right about the physical if you have to worry about what the story means because erskine bowles is a guy that can get in the middle of republicans and democrats. republicans like and, clinton's former chief of staff. he has close ties. liz: a business guy. >> a business guy with close ties to a lot of republicans. he has support from democrats. a lifelong democrat. he is a guy that can bring both sides together, and the fact is, the obama administration is not just distancing themselves. they said, we don't want any part of you, at least right now. he is telling people he will be treasury secretary. no way. liz: he doesn't want to. >> that is where it is a little murky. they don't want him. they really don't want him. from what i understand, as of now it is jack lose. the president has named jack the chief of staff, the chief of staff, and anyway, he, it's his job to lose. it's not official, anything can happen, but that's when i understand. what's even worse,
states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater threats to our closest allies and to ourselves? unfortunately, that's what we're seeing. in fact, i had seen an article in may of 2010 that indicated that this administration, the obama administration, sided with israel's enemies in demanding that israel disclose any nuclear weapons. we had never sided with israel's enemies in trying to push israel into doing something against its own interests. when you're a very small country surrounded by countries that want to see you go away, it is important that they not know all of your defenses. going back in the old testament, you find history, king his kaija -- king hezekiah showing all the defenses they had in their armory he showed them to the leaders from babylon. as a result, ultimately that kingdom was lost to the babylonians. you don't show other nations, even people you th

to find a safe haven because they know that the taxes are going to be higher than the obama administration is currently citing and they're afraid and they're terrified. >> that amounts to tax evasion, you move money off shore you've got to declare where it is and any income that you made on it. and are you telling us that rich folks are basically avoiding taxes? >> well, i think they're trying to be creative, like they always have been of the creativity makes the rich wealthy and that's what i found out over interviewing them over the last 30 years is that creativity is the best thing and i think they're trying to be honest about it, but creative. >> when does it come back to america? >> i don't know. it's a really good question, i'm asking them that and they don't know either. is america ever going to be the same? i don't know, four more years of both the obama administration, are we going to-- are we going to recognize this question after four more years, i hope so, i don't know. stuart: you're painting a pretty grim idea of the mood. it sounds like they're in despair. >> they are. there
may find out. the house ways and means committee says the obama administration has stonewalled request for information. forget co-pays. this illinois doctor charges only five bucks a visit. the 87-year-old doesn't even accept medical insurance. he claims it's not worth the hassle. he says he's just interested in helping people and not making much dough. all right. steve? >> steve: president obama yesterday held his first press conference in eight months and got testy when asked about the deadly attack in libya where four americans were murdered. >> i would like for you to address the families, if you can, on 9-11 as commander in chief, did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> i'll address the families not through the press. i'll address the families directly as i already have. i can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they're safe. >> steve: so has the president been forth coming with the american people and is congress satisfied with his respon

security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't there more security in libya previous -- previous to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say sh
he's convinced that rice is part of an obama administration cover-up over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. mccain articulated his theory this morning, pledging to do everything he can to stop rice's nomination from moving forward. >> susan rice should have been known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she would have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> and of course, mccain has enlisted reinforcements. here's comes senator lindsey graham of south carolina who is also questioning rice's credibility. >> i don't trust. the reason i don't trust her, because i think she knew better, and if she doesn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> this afternoon, the president smack them both down. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> today's repudiation of mccain's
to exam why security arrangements were so inadequate and why the obama administration offered to shift public response. here's what president obama had to say. this is his press conference in the white house. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interest in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference. yesterday the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice, ambassador to the u.n. here's an image of her in the "was
group of donors. romney arguing president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration had given to particular groups in this country. what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community, here, offering one of the gift to them. >> what the president did is he gave them two things. one a big gift on immigration with the dream act amnesty program. >> reporter: and the second thing in order to get hispanic voters. number two put in place obamacare which is basically $10,000 a family. a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group and guess what they will vote for you. >> reporter: sources telling me this has been romney's argument since the moment he realize heed lost, telling the closest circle the very next morning that america i
to read the market as an indicator should have been the most enthusiastic supporters of the obama administration since the market doubled from march of 2009 when the president was just taking over until a couple weeks ago. i don't remember people saying e o', look at the market, how wonderful obama must be. secondly, i think what you're seeing now is an artificial depression in the market because of the uncertainty. i believe that it does not reflect an erosion in fundamentals. in fact, i think the economy has been doing reasonably well, particularly our economy compared to some of the rest of the world. there's some uncertainty about europe. it is important for us to deal with the tax and sequestration issues. i believe that once we have done those, this drop will come back up. that is, i think this is an understandable reaction to the uncertainty, not a serious sign of a decline in the economy. >> absolutely. you're absolutely right. i think it's all about this uncertainty about where tax rates will be. what are the odds we're going to see a deal before year end to give this mar
.s. to press for an end to the offensive. but the obama administration lined up with the israelis. state department spokesman mark toner said the u.s. believes israel has the right to defend itself. >> our position is clear that there's no justification for the violence that hamas and other terrorist organizations are employing against israel. and the onus is on them to cease their rocket attacks so that this de-escalation can take place. >> suarez: earlier, i spoke with the israeli ambassador to the united states michael oren to discuss the latest developments. ambassador, what's the latest from tel aviv? where the strikes accurate? have missiles actually hit the city and is anyone snurt >> thankfully nobody was hurt. the rockets struck in the greater tel aviv area. the alarms went off. the sirens, prime minister netanyahu was in the city at the time to a bomb shelter and now this simply means that 4.5 million israelis-- over half the population of the state of israel-- has come under rocket fire from terrorists within gaza >> suarez: does this represent a significant of abilitys in the
of the israeli conflict can read the articles, discussion how a second term obama administration might behave that would open it up for israel to feel they need to strike quickly after the election and sort of punch first. i think that is part of what it is. frankly the israeli haves a track record. when they find somebody they have been looking for they take him out. melissa: where do we go from here? seems like it has really taken the whole thing up a notch? >> it has. it has gone up several notches. when i got up this morning reading through the news i wasn't concerned about it. i thought this would be classic couple of a day flare-up. over the course of the day events got more significant. much larger rocket that has been used in the past got fired against tel aviv you mentioned. first time in 20 years you heard air raid sirens, israeli citizens in a major city having to take shelter. this is very different than the usual rockets. there were, 300 usual small, kitush rockets. they're small. with 300 launched only three people died. with bigger rockets that have longer range you're talking
. stop fighting these wars. our national debt through the bush and obama administrations, our debt went up over $4 trillion just because of these wars that are totally senseless. the loss of life. now there are talking about, what are we going to go in -- we are so much involved with libya. look at what is happening with libya. it want to go to war against iran. i would say, that is the place to have big cuts. we all ought to agree on doing that. i want to raise -- i would not raise taxes. we need to cut spending. if you raise taxes, you're going to have a weaker economy. some of the tax cuts, even for the middle-class occurred for the bush administration. you do not want to raise taxes on the middle class. it will not be enough money. i think you have touched on something. i think we need to deal with the military. we cannot do that unless we change the foreign policy. we are not the world policeman getting involved with all of these countries. i think the american people ought to agree on that issue more readily than anything else. i do not see why we should talk about cutting health
specific things have members said about the obama administration's response that has not been adequate enough? >> will come you hear different democrat and from republicans. republicans are particularly critical. they believe the obama administration should have known right away. this is not a spontaneous attack, not part of the protest, for example. they want to understand who knew what when. what does the president know about the attack? what is his national security team now? now they want to know who knew about the securities and the lead up to the attack because there were people in tripoli and libya saying that there wasn't enough security concerns because of the things going on in libya. >> mccain, graham and india yesterday made remarks about u.n. ambassador susan rice. what did they say in what is it mean in context context of the benghazi attacks? >> well, basically what they said is they don't trust her. they said she should have known better that you say five days after the attack but it looks to be a spontaneous response to anti-muslim video. they said she should have know
together on this and the obama administration for their continuing efforts to open up trade opportunities so that we can make it here and sell it everywhere, which is, i think, should be our focus. in addition to that, i think it shows how over time old wounds can be healed and new relationships can be built. i spoke earlier today with the consulate general for the state of israel in philadelphia offering my support and concern for the unfortunate circumstances that are taking place in the middle east now in which hundreds of bombs have -- rockets have been shot at israel. some of its largest cities as the targets. and this is a matter in which obviously much high levels in our government, there have been communications and the assurance that israel has the right to defend itself. but i think that we can see in this russia trade agreement that if we can get to the point where there can be relationships that are built on self-interest and economic development, that we can put the weapons aside and move towards a circumstance in which people are focused on economic activity. we see in this
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the
and believes that the 39.6 number is still on the table and that the can democrats and the obama administration still have the mandate. >> you're talking higher marginal rate ps p. >> yes. he doesn't believe there are not enough deductions. so many of the ceos that came out of that meeting seemed to be wink winwink, nod nod, says may he's not just talking 35%. deductions plus. >> i thought for sure raising the rate is on the table. that there will be no deal without raising the rate on the wealthy. >> the idea is raising the amount of taxes that wealthy pay and you can get there two different ways. one is by raising the marginal rate, one is raising the effective rate. >> but i don't. >> i've heard that as a way of stopping raising the rate. i don't think there's any discussion -- there will be no deal without eliminating the burke tax cuts on the wealthy. >> i think people are coming around to that view. >> but this is the republican view. >> but i'm saying -- >> if you listened to the president carefully last friday -- >> i'm not ed advocating either friday. >> the president last friday -- th
years as it relates to the obama administration is not positive for stocks. they don't want to say it. they don't want to write it. but you can find it everywhere. the evidence is mounting all over the street that the last two weeks there is a massive outside allocation shift as a result of it. this is what i want to say. i find it very disturbing when people walk into this building, come on air, talk about the portfolios. if you're a loan only manager you have to try to find stocks that are working but, remember, there's nothing wrong with holding cash or saying it like you think it is. i want to point something out here. this is the wellington letter. he writes he's been doing this for 35 years. this is what he said in the edition that came out yesterday. bat ten down the hatches. protect your assets, your business, your job. this is no longer a theoretical exercise. i want to tell you, carl, i find it disgusting that a lot of people are saying that to their clients and they're saying that across the board but they're not putting it in print. if you're saying something like that, ha
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi, libya. republicans, they stepped up their criticism of the obama administration after the president's strong defense yesterday of u.n. ambassador suzanne rice. rice originally said the attack resulted from protests over an anti-islamic video. while some democrats defended rice today, one congressman called the president a liar. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of this tragedy. >> information that rice received, she cede from the administration, and that information is what she knew at that time. whether or not she knew other information and whether or not she told the truth, that is not an issue here. >> the fact is without iffing gu intoou all the details, documents received so that in 24 hours of the attack people m intelligence community believe that this was a terrorist attack, there was a planned attack, and so when they knew that the day after, which would have been september 12th, why on september 14th was general petraeu
the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h
